Staggering amount Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spent at Man Utd revealed with transfers dwarfing rest of Premier League

MANCHESTER UNITED have spent more on transfers than any other Premier League club since hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian chief, 48, is rumoured to be on the brink of the sack following Sunday's 5-0 embarrassment at home to Liverpool.

United are now without a win in their last four Prem games – losing three of those – and have slipped to seventh in the table, eight points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

Steve Bruce was the most-recent top-flight boss to be sacked.

But at least the former Newcastle chief can blame a lack of investment in his squad.

Solskjaer won't have that luxury if he's given the boot.

After all, United have the highest net spend on transfers since he succeeded Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

In fact, Solskjaer has commissioned FOUR £50million-plus signings since arriving.


Harry Maguire (£85m), Bruno Fernandes (£55m), Jadon Sancho (£73m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£50m) have all joined under his watch.

And then there's the likes of Raphael Varane (£42.7m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£19.7m).

Amad Diallo cost £37m, while Alex Telles arrived in a £15.7m deal and Facundo Pellistri saw the club shell out £9m.

Let's not forget flop Donny van de Beek – a £40m buy in the summer of 2020.

United have made some money on players sales since Solskjaer arrived, including £73m on Romelu Lukaku in 2019 and Daniel James for an initial £25m earlier this summer.

Despite that, United have comfortably the highest net spend in the Premier League – a staggering £312.1m.

Arsenal sit second on £279.7m, with only Aston Villa (£244.7) and Tottenham (£207) breaking the £200m mark.

In terms of the their league title rivals, Manchester City have a net spend of £199.6m.

Chelsea, arguably the favourites for this season's crown, boast a net transfer spend of just £82.1m.

And then there's Liverpool – the team who trounced United 5-0 on Sunday – and another very likely to win the league this season.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds have a net PROFIT of £3.6m thanks to their shrewd work in the transfer market since Solskjaer's arrival.

That's a staggering £315.7m LESS expenditure than Man Utd.

And in that time, of course, Liverpool won the Premier League title, in 2019-20.
